who was this? adirondacks 5 years ago topless

so, 5 years ago, ( about 1/8/2005 ) a friend of mine had a job interview with a company based out of montreal. he was in rough shape and needed the job baaaaad. at the time he drove an escort wagon with a bad transmission and was going to take it to canada for the interview, except we got a blizzard the day he was supposed to go.
his dad has just got a new jeep and was kind enough to let him borrow it to make the trip, even though we were getting feet of snow that day. he called me up the night before as asked if i wanted to go for the ride. i couldn't resist a random road trip in a mega snow storm to canada in a borrowed jeep. we hit the road at about 4 am. we couldn't drive any faster than 50 mph because the windsheild washer fluid, which we used 2 gallons of that trip, would freeze on the windshield. we had the heat on full blast and froze our arse's off of his dads hard top tj. once we got about a little ways past albany the snow let up and shortly there after we came across the crazy mofo in the pictures below way the hell up in the adirondacks crusing up the northway.
it's my hopes that this person will see this posting. for the past 5 years you've blown our minds. seeing you out that day in sub freezing temperatures just after a blizzard, topless on the open highway has been a topic of conversation between us ever since. we're planning a trip up there again this january and you came up again and i went searching and came across these photos i took of you.
even now that he and i both have jeeps of our own and understand the jeep-isms, it was still damn cold that day.
if your out there, hit me up. :-)

So for five years you have been looking for this guy, what are you gonna say when you find him, " oh, we are long lost soul mates because you drive with your hard top off in the winter, even though it probably wasn't about being cool, but the hard top being gone. or something." I'm just want to know what you want to say to this guy so badly that 5 years later it is still valid. Are you gonna talk about his cold balls that day? Or what an awesome jacket he had? Or why he didn't just take the whole door off? his destination? What if he lives in China now, and the Jeep is scrap? All I'm saying is it a stretch to think this guy *might* even remember passing you , on some random highway, and cares enough to remember. What if he drives a Ford now?
